Today's book is
Life on the Refrigerator Door
This was in the category: An Epistolary Book
This is a story of a mother and daughter who don't get to see each other very often. They leave each other notes on their refrigerator door as a way of communication. The mom - a physician - works odd hours, and the daughter - a teenager - spends so much time with her friends outside of school that the two hardly talk.
Then a family tragedy strikes, and as much as the mother and daughter try to make more time for each other, they just can't seem to make that happen. Their are many regrets and things that are left unsaid.
This was a very quick book. Each page was a note from one person or the other - took me no longer than an hour to read the whole book. It was fine. I got the idea - never put off spending time with your loved ones. Nothing is more important. I liked that the whole story unfolded just through notes left back and forth between the mother and daughter, but they could have made it more in depth. I didn't get very attached to the characters with the story written this way.
If you are looking for a really, really fast read, you can pick up this book. I wouldn't spend money on it - if you can't borrow it, then skip it.
Starts: 2 1/2
